A couple of months ago I wrote an article on supporting family caregivers.  

You might remember that I mentioned family caregivers, often referred to as informal caregivers, provide 90% of the long-term care offered in America.  The value of the unpaid care they provide runs into the hundreds of billions of dollars.

Caregivers frequently experience the need to “do it all.”
